    So if I read this right, Moorside and Swinton aren't going to merge? If so I think they've made a sensible decision.

    Very 60s. I thought they had stopped with the whole idea of building a trendy looking school and were just going for functional? I wish they stop with the flat roofs and overhanging 1st floors, they didn't work in the past andd I can't see them working now. Good to see you are getting a new school - we are just waiting for the call too.

    The flat tin roofs are great fun when it is raining hard. Lets just hope they build it properly and not go for the cheapest....

    The new build will contain some very advanced ICT infrastructure
    Cybernetically enhanced monkey teachers? Cos if it's not that I'm guessing they mean CAT6,fibre runs and a few interactive whiteboards

    From those photos/designs, I don't think that building will age well.

    Hope it goes well though!

    Wireless throughout with laptops and Ipads plus IWBs (very 21st century) and open plan spaces for enhanced teaching and learning hehe!

    All attached to the "cloud" which will be managed by the LA's managed service team as cheaply and ineffectual as possible so that the ICT becomes a joke rather than an enhancement to the school.

    Good luck Gatt

    I'd like to see ome Isolinear circuitry and bio-neural gel packs, with the staf all wandering around with Comm Badges...

    The big issue for me is whether they will move to CC4 or stay on the Gatt Industries Network System (R) (C) (aka Vanilla Network)
    Quick chat with the HT reveals he'd prefer the latter -

    This is brand new, only opened last year and it looks terrible


    It's a college btw. Its right on the docks so it just looks like they are dismantling a rig or aircraft carrier or something. It certainly isn't pretty by any stretch...
